Hi, looking for some advice on a newborn car seat.
We live in central London and don't own a car ourselves, so need something that can be installed with a seatbelt. Car seat will be used for the ff in first year:
- Taking baby home from hospital in Uber/taxi/hire car
- Occasional Ubers/Taxis as needed (we don't take them frequently but it would be nice to have the option)
- Travel -- between 4-6 months baby will probably travel to at least 2 other countries (to meet great-grandparents and extended family) where we'll have to be in a car ride home from the airport, plus a little bit of car travel around town as needed. So ideally we'd like something reasonably lightweight.
I like the look of the Cybex Cloud Z, the lie-flat feature seems handy in case baby falls asleep on the trip and we want to let them nap for a bit after getting back to house/hotel. Would love to hear any feedback re: ease of belt installation.
However, based on what I've read it's not i-Size rated if it's not installed with the Isofix base so I'm wondering if I should opt for something else? I don't fully understand i-Size and all the other safety ratings so not sure if seats are just considered less safe without a base. I've been eyeing other people's baby gear (from a responsible social distance of course) whenever I'm outside lately and it seems like a lot of people have Maxi-Cosi car seats, and the Pebble Pro also looks nice... any advice greatly appreciated :)
